Blake Shelton Is “Gonna Miss Working With That Idiot” Adam Levine on “The Voice”

Count Blake Shelton among those who were shocked to learn that Adam Levine won’t return as a judge on Season 17 of The Voice.

The news was announced on Today on May 24 by the host of The Voice, Carson Daly.

Adam has served as a judge with Blake since the show’s inception in 2011. The pair’s often-contentious shtick continued to keep viewers tuning in for 16 seasons. After hearing the news, Blake didn’t miss the chance to hurl a final Twitter insult Adam’s way, noting that he was “gonna miss working with that idiot.”

Gwen Stefani will take over Adam’s chair for Season 17, joining boyfriend Blake, John Legend and Kelly Clarkson as judges.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
